My boys (4 and 5) are curious about everything. Now that my one is in Kindergarten he is starting to learn more about all sorts of subjects, science especially. Magnets are something that always amazed me so I admit I was just as excited to check out the Primary Science Magnet Set from Learning Resources, as my boys were!

This kit includes 14 pieces including 10 double-sided activity cards. The activity cards are both easy and challenging and some require some household objects such as water or paperclips. The set though was fun on its own for us. My boys were amazed at how the magnets would stick together one way and not the other way. I started teaching them about polar opposites, magnetism and science in general. The pieces that this kit comes with are ones that I would have never thought of using together. There is a big horsehoe magnet perfect to work little magnetic ladybugs through a maze. Ring magnets and a magnetic post are fun because you can make the magnetics float on the pole. My sons favorite though is the Snap-on Cars. You can push the cars together and watch them spin away from one another or magnetically snap them together to zoom around. This is a simple kit but fun and perfect for young learners.

I couldn't agree more with my kids that Science is so much fun! Now I will admit that sometimes teaching your kids all about the how's and whys of science can seem like a huge daunting task but it doesn't have to be! Why as of recently, I've been teaching my four year old daughter the wonders and ways of magnetism, thanks to a great new science activity set from Learning Resources!

First thing to know is that the Primary Science Magnet Set from Learning Resources is geared toward children ages 4-12 years old. The set comes with 10 double sided activity cards, an extremely helpful guide, and lots of other eye catching items (14 total) that have kept my daughter quite engaged in learning and exploring the many different ways magnets work.

A few of the activities we tried out where the Amazing Maze, in which the key concept was that magnets can retain their magnetic force through other objects. My daughter took the large yellow magnet in the set on moved it around underneath the leaf maze to move both of the included ladybugs! She totally was intrigued and having a lot of fun.

The next activity we did together was the Floating Magnets, in which we used the four round magnets and the long pole. This activity taught my daughter all about how magnets can attract and repel! She was very fascinated by everything that we did and has learned with the set with me during our schooling time and has enjoyed playing with it many times all on her own. My four year old loves to tinker so this set has been a wonderful educational tool in our home giving her the freedom to explore in learning all about polarity, attraction, and repulsion in fun hands on way!

I highly recommend The Primary Science Magnet Set for any home or school classroom. The set is colorful, durable, engaging, and encourages kids to be hands on in learning new things!

Everything is high quality...our boys (ages 5 & 6) had fun exploring the different ways to use the magnets. Wish there were some more ideas with the kit...they enjoyed what we did but don't really want to play with it again.

My son loves science and for Christmas asked for science toys. I bought him this and he absolutely loves doing the different magnetic experiments with it and playing with it. It is an amazing educational toy for kids with an interest in science and how things work. The pieces are all made from high quality and sturdy materials, the packaging is very nice as well. Unlike most sets where you just put the pieces in an empty box this has a fitness plastic base inside of the box that all of the pieces pop in and out of to make storage very easy and organized.

Excellent magnet introduction for Pre K! There are various size magnets. Both my children, ages 3 & 1.5, have their favorites to learn and play with. Love the Science Lab cards it comes with to conduct experiments!! The horseshoe is the most powerful. Wish the others had a slight stronger magnetism to them.

This is the third Science set we have purchased from Primary Science and find that they are solid, sturdy & age appropriate for small children.

My almost 3 year old is already getting a lot out of playing with this magnet set. The only thing keeping it from a 5 star rating is that the magnets don't seem very strong, in my opinion. But perhaps that's not a bad thing for young children. The suggested activities that come with this set are fantastic!

I like this magnet set for teaching the basics - north and south pole, poles attract more strongly than the center of a magnet, opposites attract, same poles repel etc. My 5 year old clearly got the concepts presented and the 10 instruction cards are clear/easy to follow. The activities are extremely simple (e.g. see what a magnet picks up and what it doesn't) and I therefore think this set is best for a young child (4-7yrs). The bumper car activity didn't work as well as I hoped but I am still generally pleased with the set. My only dissapointment was that the activities are so simple that they can all be completed in about 30 minutes. Other science kits (not related to magnets) that we have purchased took days/weeks to complete all of the activities.
